Things Start Speeding Up is the provoking lead single from Australian troubadour Kieran Wicks, setting the tone of his defiant new album Sticking to My Guns.
Performed by 7 musical luminaries Sticking to My Guns is a psychoacoustic production masterpiece incorporating 20 different instruments.
"An epicurean melting pot engaging a kaleidoscope of senses in its experience. It's all here; the elements of raw emotion, poetic observation, exceptional musicianship, driving, tribal, caveman rhythms, soaring lead guitar, impassioned melody, thick grooving basslines, rich wistful harmonies, and a heartbreaking palette of strings, keys, horns and didgeridoo, animating perennial tales served up on tasty, tasty hooks".
